Hulu and Viacom have decided to stick together. The companies announced today that they’ve renewed and expanded their content partnership, offering Hulu subscribers even more content from the likes of Nickelodeon, Comedy Central, and MTV, including popular shows like Inside Amy Schumer that aren’t available for streaming anywhere else.

The multiyear deal continues to grant Hulu subscription video on-demand rights to select shows from Viacom’s media networks, adding exclusive rights to series including Broad CityFinding Carter, and more. Thanks to the deal, Hulu subscribers (who pay either $7.99 a month or $11.99 monthly for commercial free streaming) are able to watch episodes of current seasons on delay after linear broadcasts have aired.

In addition to current seasons, Hulu also has an extensive library of past seasons of numerous Viacom shows. As a result of the expanded deal, the number of full seasons has grown substantially. Hulu will now boast a larger collection of past seasons of WorkaholicsAwkwardCatfish: The TV Show, and others.

Kids content was a major part of the deal as well. The streamer was able to lock down a host of Nickelodeon shows, such as Teenage Mutant Ninja TurtlesRabbids InvasionSanjay and Craig, and more. For nostalgic older fans, there are plenty of fun new options as well. Doug and Rugrats, among others, will be available for streaming for the first time on Hulu.

“Today, we are not only extending our deal, but we are adding more premium content than ever from their popular family of networks,” said Mike Hopkins, CEO of Hulu, in a press release.

Hulu’s latest additions and expansions appeal to a wide variety of viewers, which presumably will make the streaming service more attractive to new and current subscribers alike.

Goldie Hawn in talks to play Amy Schumer’s mom in action-comedy
goldie hawn amy schumer movie fouls play

Amy Schumer has shared the screen with a lot of high-profile actors and actresses over the course of her career so far, and it looks like she might be adding another well-known name to that list. Academy Award-winning actress Goldie Hawn is in early talks to co-star as Schumer's mother in an upcoming 20th Century Fox comedy, according to THR.

The film, an action-comedy that focuses on a mother-daughter duo, has yet to cast its matriarch to play opposite Schumer, and Hawn seems like a perfect option. Not only does she have the comedic chops to pull it off, she can draw on her experience of being the mother of another high profile actress, Kate Hudson. Fans shouldn't get too excited about the prospect yet, though, as Hawn hasn't accepted the role.

New star-studded video against gun violence features Amy Schumer, Kevin Bacon, and more
Amy Schumer Chris Rock

With acts of gun violence in the news on a seemingly daily basis, the nonprofit Everytown for Gun Safety has released a new video with a simple message: "We can end gun violence." The video cuts between everyday people and what seems to be half of Hollywood — including Amy Schumer, Kevin Bacon, Jennifer Aniston, and more — as they deliver the statement.

Everytown used a collaborative video app called Peepsqueeze Inc., which enabled the organization to put together the montage. The format made it possible to feature such a massive (and star-studded) group of people. A mix of everyday people, including moms and survivors of gun violence, are featured alongside cultural figures like President Barack Obama, filmmaker Spike Lee, and actors Julianne Moore, Sofia Vergara, and Michael J. Fox, among others.
